This week was kind of the shits for me. Because I am smart and work a four-day work week, my week is now over. Because I am striving to be a half glass full kinda gal (it can be a half glass of hard liquor, right?) I am going to highlight the positive:
Things that made me smile this week:
Grace, looking at me accusingly
“Mommy, you laugh a lot”.
Edie explaining a picture that she drew to me of a box with lots of colourful blobs around it. Turns out it is a prototype (my word, not hers) of a butterfly machine she wants to make so she can crank out butterflies on a whim.
So many pretty shiny medals!
Sitting in massive over-stuffed chairs at Zoe’s (tucked to the left of the lobby at the Chateau Laurier) with some super-funny ex-colleagues, sipping on a whiskey sour and eating fancy cheese.
My mom talking about “the email” like she owns it.
Edie skiing and being all like “whatever” when she made it down the hill herself without falling/losing control.
Hearing one of Gracie’s friends saying “that’s so random” TOTALLY out of context.
Friends who are happy (I’m typing at you Mr. Friendly Neighbourhood Curator!)
Here’s to next week being better, and Go Canada Go!
(I need some of those Olympic mitts to bring to a friend in the States next week, if anyone has a lead, please let me know where I can get them).
